Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. And they straightway left their nets, and followed him. - Matthew 4:19-20
The call to Simon Peter and Andrew to follow the Savior as fishers of men echoes down through the centuries and applies to us all. Those two faithful brothers left their nets immediately to begin their missions. We, however, need not turn aside from our mortal responsibilities. We can be missionaries in our own homes, in the workplace, and at play. Our Lord bids us to follow Him, meaning that we need to look to His example, emulate His attributes, and live His teachings. In so doing, people will be drawn to us as those in Israel were drawn to the Son of Man. Our light can be a beacon to those seeking the truth, and with the Spirit as our guide, we can help bring souls unto Christ.
